This minimalist cafe is dedicated to Korean rice cakes.
This sleek, all-white and wood cafe near MRT Ratchadapisek sells traditional Korean rice cakes, or tteok, in a range of modern flavors and varieties.
Named after the five flavors essential to Korean cooking— salty, sweet, sour, bitter, spicy, known together as omi—the cafe cooks fresh rice cakes each morning to use in their sweet and savory treats.
For those who crave something outside the rulebook, try the creamy injeolmi (B180), a sticky rice cake stuffed with red bean and sweet potato cream.
If sweet treats aren’t your cup of tea, Omi also sells classic tteokbokki (B100) and tteok-kochi, deep-fried rice cakes (B60), both served hot with gochujang-laced sauce.
You can also get your tteokbokki with deep-fried mandoo (dumplings), kimari (seaweed rolls), or fish cakes, or try it served in a creamy, sweet and spicy sauce (B110).
Wash it down with sugar-free roasted corn tea (B50) or cool off with fresh yuzu sorbet (B60).
